Named after the seminal ninja video game, Shinobi could creep up on his rivals here at big odds.
2.18 Worcester - Shinobi
A competitive novices' chase at Worcester can mean that Shinobi has been slept on in the market.
The wily Kim Bailey has done it all in racing and although not quite at the top of his game can still produce very nice individuals.
This son of Ifraaj came to form well last time out at Newton Abbott, winning a two-mile, five furlong handicap hurdle after making all the running.
This two mile, seven furlong chase will be a test of stamina and jumping but Bailey will have had the five year-old well schooled and if settled by stable jockey David Bass, could well produce a stealthy performance which belies the odds.
